Dear Reader, It has been fun, catharctic, heart wrenching, inspiring and powerful to write this travel novel after a month long trip to France, Germany and Serbia. Initially, it started out by writing down my research about Mary Magdalene, the Holy Grail and the mystic sites, but then I also looked for new jobs in Germany and prepared for my final trip to Serbia, where I longed to connect with a man, whom I admired from far. Essentially, this book represents the results of my soul journey, which reached the end of a cycle in 2012, when realized I am at crossroads in my life where I was in the situation to make a decision where to live - Germany or the United States of America, This was part of external reality, but psychologically I found the pressing need to make some internal changes in my very personal relationships This is book is as much about the holy grail the legend of Mary Magdalene as much as it is about my own story. ...

We've all been there. One minute you're fast asleep, and in the next you're tumbling from dreams of deserts and demons, into semi-consciousness, mouth full of sand, head throbbing. You're hungover. Courageous journalist Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall has gone to the front lines of humanity's age-old fight against hangovers to settle once and for all the best way to get rid of the aftereffects of a night of indulgence (short of not drinking in the first place). Hangovers have plagued human beings for about as long as civilization has existed (and arguably longer), so there has been plenty of time for cures to be concocted. But even in 2018, little is actually known about hangovers, and less still about how to cure them. Cutting through the rumour and the myth, Hungover explores everything from polar bear swims, to saline IV drips, to the age-old hair of the dog, to let us all know which ones actually work. And along the way, Bishop-Stall regales readers with stories from humanity's long and fraught relationship with booze, and shares the advice of everyone from Kingsley Amis to a man in a pub.
